Damn... These last 10 days are gonna drive some people insane. I doubt I'm in the market for a LS7 powered Camaro but it will make me stall a little on my 1LE. I hope she doesn't show up for at least 8 more days. That way I can keep the peace with my salesman while I wait for the 27th.

June 6th of last year is when we saw 2013 pricing. That doesn't mean it will be around the same time we see 2014 pricing, but I plan on using it as a guide. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=228997

So, I went to the auto show in Columbus today with a friend to check out all the recent and upcoming cars. He's a Mustang guy, so I waited patiently while he talked with the Ford representatives at the show, and he waited while I talked with the Chevrolet people about Camaros. The woman I spoke to showed me a Hot Wheels edition convertible 2SS. She was telling me all about it, specs, unique features, so I asked if the color would be made available for the 2014's, and she said no, it was limited to this special edition.

Then, I couldn't help myself, I looked at her with half squinted eyes and a sideways glance and said, "Okay, everything here from 2013 is great and all, the Hot Wheels edition, the ZL1, but what about these rumors of the Z28 making a comeback?" To be honest, I didn't expect anything of any substance to be said as an answer to that, but what I got as a response was surprising.

The girl looked away, took a deep breath, then smiled and said, "Well, there is nothing "official" that is being said as of yet about that. However, there are a lot of leftover LS7 power plants from the C6 Corvette program, a "leaked" vin sheet that seems to indicate as much might be in the works, plus the fact that the Gen 5 Camaros are getting closer to the end of their run, so it wouldn't and shouldn't be a surprise if the Z28 makes its return as an end of an era surprise for Camaro loyalists. There is talk of some big news as far as Camaro is concerned supposed to be revealed at the New York Auto show, which is only ten days away by the way, so the best I can say for now is simply Stay Tuned and Keep the Faith."

I was shocked to hear those exact phrases and wording at the end of what she had to say. I looked at her, probably with a half confused look on my face and said, "That's just the sort of speculation and things being said over on Camaro5.com, which is where I read up on all the latest Camaro news."

She just shrugged and said, "Never been to that site, I'll have to check that out." She then thanked me for stopping by the Chevy booth, and moved on to the next group that was looking at the Camaros.

I know this isn't anything beyond what we already knew, but the fact that Chevrolet had someone so knowledgeable about the cars even down to details like that regarding current rumors really impressed me. Not to mention specific phrasing like "Stay Tuned" and "Keep the Faith" just threw me for a loop. Maybe there is still some solid hope yet. What do you guys make of this? I was really surprised to get a response like that from a Chevy rep.
I hope she was told that she could say that. It is kind of strange that she uses phrases that we see on here all the time and has never been to the site.

Yeah, it really surprised me to hear her say that, to say the least. It did make me that much more excited to pay attention to the news on the 27th. I mean, she didn't really say anything that we didn't already have as scraps of information already. The only thing it added to anything was a Chevrolet rep bringing up the Vin sheet and the LS7 motor unprompted beyond a question about a potential Z28 announcement. The Stay Tuned bit made me think that maybe it was a coached response to any questions on the matter?

I'm not sure what to think, I just wanted to pass it along to you guys for analysis. I asked, and really didn't expect anything like what I got as a response, but it did make me more hopeful than I had been previously.

...now that's where we may part company. Become a student of history and read about why the F body line died. You are far off base my friend.

Don't forget weight. In the 1/4 mile weight is very important. The GT500 is lighter by about 200lbs so that makes a difference.

my argument is the fact that the ZL1 can put the power to the ground way better..less slipping and traction loss issues creates better times around a track and the 1/4 mile

We don't really know about the 6thgen. We do know it will be on Alpha and will probably weigh less than the ATS for comparative powertrains.

...wait till about 12:45 Eastern time tomorrow to say anything about Z/28.....there is nothing to support that right now. And, I think there will not be any Z until the Gen 6 Camaro. We may get a LS7 option now until then before it goes away, but it surely will not be called a Z/28.
